Social Media is ideal for Tourism, after all you don’t get much more social than travel! People naturally want to share their experience through photos, reviews, videos and people also want to learn from OTHERS experience to maximise the chance their carefully planned trip will turn out as they envisage. Most holiday searches will go online and check out the pictures, stories and reviews that are on offer for the region they are researching before making any firm commitments, plans or bookings.

If a picture says a thousand words, imagine what a private album of video, images and comments can do! FACT: A 2010 McKinsey Quarterly report shows that word of mouth is the primary factor behind 20-50% of all purchasing decisions.
